Air Commandos with the 1st Special Operations Maintenance Squadron restored a CV-22 Osprey at Hurlburt Field, Fla., March 28, 2017. Corrosion control Airmen restore the structural integrity of aircraft by repainting parts of the body every two years that have been weakened by exposure to the environment; prolonging the life of the asset. These Air Commandos ensure CV-22’s are ready to deploy rapidly in order to respond to critical situations globally by ensuring the aircraft has protection against the elements it will encounter.
